Takayama

Takayama is a charming and historic city located in the mountainous region of Gifu Prefecture in central Japan. It is known for its well-preserved Edo-period (17th to 19th century) streetscapes, traditional architecture, and beautiful natural surroundings.

At the heart of Takayama is the Sanmachi Suji District, which is famous for its beautifully preserved Edo-period merchant streets. Visitors can stroll along the narrow streets lined with traditional wooden buildings, shops, sake breweries, and restaurants. The district takes on a magical atmosphere in the evenings when lanterns are lit.

Some of the other key historical sights in Takayama include the Takayama Jinya, a historical government building that served as the local administrative center during the Edo period, and the Hida Folk Village, an open-air museum showcasing traditional thatched-roof farmhouses and buildings from the Hida region. Visitors can step inside the homes and learn about rural life in centuries past.

Takayama is also surrounded by beautiful natural landscapes, and there are various hiking trails and opportunities for outdoor activities in the nearby mountains and parks. The Kamikochi area, a pristine alpine valley, is a popular destination for hiking and nature enthusiasts.
